How much did the ad agency charge them for this 'emotional association' or whatever they probably call it.

It's the AA.... they just need to cut the time it takes for their drivers to get to people stuck on the side of the road. They should be selling efficiency and price... not ********.

I know right? I’ve seen this ad 3-4 times before I saw the AA logo and I just don’t get it. Are they trying to do a Cadbury’s “weird but fun” ad because they’ve missed the mark there, just fix me **** in’ car!

And what’s with these ads for BBC/ITV/C4/C5? It’s on all the channels, it was on before the 6pm news tonight, do they think we’re going to watch them more because of this?

It's shot well, but it doesn't mean anything or convey any information... and has nothing to do with the AA... or how they can help you better than someone else if your car is borked.

They have an actual business beyond their brand recognition, why divert from that. Guess they want to sell soft toys for Christmas...
